Swiss pianist and conductor Edwin Fischer joins the Philharmonia Orchestra under the direction of Wilhelm Furtwängler in this stunning reference recording of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5, the "Emperor".

Furtwängler is widely regarded as one of the greatest symphonic and operatic conductors of the 20th century, alongside Fischer who himself is regarded as one of the great interpreters of Classical era music for piano, including Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven. This formula leads to an incredible and evocative performance for any lover of classical music.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
